Elly Strahl posted this picture of our resident alligator today. Whenever I have my camera he/she isn't there (the alligator not Elly). I found a couple of other photos Elly posted previously. Here they are.

It was a red letter day for Bingo. One of the Village's most popular events, if you wore red tonight you got a free card in honor of St Joseph's day.

Either Fred has a bingo or he has to go to the washroom

Older Boot Camp Photos from Elly

I did not get to any boot camps this season to take photos so Elly sent me some from previous years (as always you can click on the photos to enlarge them).

I wasn't sure what this was when Elly sent it but I see now it's an Easter centrepiece

Photos from Strawberry Picking and Shortcake on Sunday

Ann Bennett sent me these photos but I can't remember who took them. Maybe you can add a comment below Ann. It sounds and looks like the event was a success on Sunday.

A link to more photos from the March Dance from Rusty of the Music Makers

Rusty did a much better job of photos than yours truly. Here is a link to Rusty's photos.
